Liberty Normal College is not an institution of re- cent origin, but is the result of a hearty growth. More than sixteen years ago the peopleof Liberty erected the lirst of the Liberty Normal College buildings. This school, formei'ly known as Liberty Academy a,nd Busi- ness Institute, has attracted students from many of tlie Southern States. New buildings were erected from time to time to meet the growing demands of the school. In the spring of 1896 the buildings and grounds were bought by Thomas C. Amiclr, and in order to meet the demands of the people, thecouises of study ha,ve been extended, until they now embi-ace the full College Courses of Study. The name of the institution was al- so changed to Liberty No}mal College. In the year 1899 Prof. P. E Shaw, of the University of Nashville, Tennessee, was admitted as an equal part- ner with the President, and the College is now under the joint control of the President and his associate, Profes sor Shaw. The Legislature of 1899 gave the College a charter, conferring upon the institution full corporate powers to establish Courses of Study, confer Diplomas upon grad nation, to raise funds for the benetit of the College and of its students, and to appoint Trustees and Boards of Directoi's for the better government and maintenance of the Institution of learnino:. Liberty Normal College. Location Liberty Normal College is situated in Liberty, Ran- dolph County, North Carolina. It is on the main line of .the great SouLhei-n Railway leading from Mount Airy to Sanford, North Carolina. It is twenty miles northeast of Asheboro, the county seat of Randolph County, The location is w^ell adapted for a school. The in- habitants of Liberty are cultured and refined, and the student associates from day to day with those who have a tendency to improve his moral character, and to in- spif-e him to a nobler manhood. There are no bar rooms and nothing to distract from study. The land is high and free from malarial influence and sickness among the student body is a thing that is almost unknown. The location is also very beautiful, and appeals to the ass- thelic faculties of the student. There is no more beautiful section ui central North Carolina than the sec- tion of country ai'ound Liberty. A succession of hill, dale, and valley, grove and forest, make our location as beautiful as could be desired. The College Campus is a grove of maples and is one among the niost pleasant places in Liberty. The College has access to a spring of pure mineral water which has been pronounced by our most eminent physicians to be the best mineral water in the country. The water possesses those curative properties that keeps the student strong and well and capable of doing the very best work in the school room. The first thing that a parent should look after in choosing a school is the health of his child. In sending to Liberty, the parent naay ]-est assured that the health of his son or daughter will be well cared for. The mail and telegraphic facihties here are the very best. Trains arrive every few hours and a number of mails arrive daily from the country. Liberty Normal College. Churches. There are four churches in the town; the Methodist Protestant, the Methodist Episcopal, the Baptist and the Christian. Each church has its Sunday-School, and every student is required to attend one of these Sunday-Schools. Each student is also expected to at- ten d divine services every Sunday. Purposes. The purposes of Liberty Normal College are to train men and women for life, to develop in them all the man- hood and womanhood possible, and to develop such a character as will give them power and influence among men. The time has come when the si udent needs more than a mere knowledge of facts; he must have the pow- er to use and apply them. He must be thoroughly in- doctrinated in principles that he may see the relation of cause to effect and of effect to cause and thus be helped to carve out his careei- in the world. He needs tJjat mental culture and discipline that will give him ])ower to do and act, and will enable him to arrive at a success- ful solution of any and all the problems, both social and economic, that are continually rising to the surface. — Not mental culture alone, but moral and physical cul- ture are necessary to make the full man. It is the pur- pose of the College to prepare the student for complete living, and to aid nature in the development of the phys- ical, intellectual and moral faculties of man, in view of his happiness, his perfection and his social destination. Liberty Normal College. Hethods of Instruction. The Methods of Instruction used are the results of experience and of the latest scientific study of the mind and its workings. From a long course of profes- sional training and experience, the faculty have gather- ed such a list of educational doctrine and educational thought, that they ha\^e made themselves masters in their chosen field of work. The very best methods of instruction are used, and the result is a quick and thor- ough mental and moral growth of the individual. We do not claim that this scholarship and culture may be gained by any short or royal road. There is no easy and expeditious way t(3 become a scholarly man or vi'^om. an The Roman maxim that "The gods have placed sweat in the path of excellence," applies in the school Hfe as well as in any other department of life. Instruc- tion that goes only far enough to create in the student a conceit that he is wise is a very sorry preparation for the serious affairs of life. The more modest school and the one of greatest value to the student, gives such de[)th and extension of scholarship that its students contract a love for training and culture and form a mod- est estimate of their present attainments. A school of this kind creates in a student such a desire for learning, knowledge and culture that he becomes a student for life. Equipment. The buildings of the Liberty Normal College are commodious. The recitation rooms are furnished with the latest and best iron frame desks. The buildings are well lighted, well ventilated, and well heated. There 8 Liberty Normal College. are in the buildings music rooms, society halJs, teach- er's offices, besides the regular recitation rooms. The Chapel for morning and evening services, also for Com- mencements, is used for a study hall. Tlie grounds are laid off into walks and avenues. There is plenty of room for physical exercise and recreation. The stu- dent is encouraged to take plenty of athletic exercise. We hope soon to have a well equipped gymnasium. Library. An effort was made during the last school year to equip the College with a good working library, and the results far exceeded the expectations. A fund wns raised, and the College nov/ possesses a good library of the very best books. In the selection of these books, special attention was paid to ihe needs of the students of the College and such books were bought as the stu- dents need for reference. After these were purchased, then the works of the masters in literatui e, in science, and in art were added. The students of the College now have the opportunity of communing with the mas- ter minds of the w^orld through the books in the College Library. Nearly 1000 books were dr-awn from the libra- ry and read during the few months since the iibraiy was installed. All students of the College have access to the library without cost. The library is one of the great means of culture that the College possesses. The student is taught to love to read, and instead of spending his time in loaf- ing and idling, he is found reading and learning some- thing that wi-ll be of value to him in later life. Too much stress cannot be laid on this feature of our school. A school with a good library is w^orth incalcu- lably more to the student than the school that has none. Liberty Normal College. 9 In the Liberty Normal College, the student has every opportunity for culture and improvement. Dicipline and Qovernment. Every student is taught the right and is required to do the right. Moi'al suasion is used to lead the tr()ublesome pupil to do his duty. Where moral suasion and kind treatment will not avail, we believe in using the "i-od of correction." And if this will not avail, or if lh(i student wields a bad influence over his compan- ions, he will not be allowed to remain in school. We expect to make the type of our school high with respect to morality, and we will not be bothered with mean and vicious pupils. We wish in the Liberty Normal Col- lege good, noble young men and women who wish to pj'epare themselves mentally, morally, and spiritually for the work of life. Every departmeutof our school is thoroughly organ- ized. The students are at all times under the super, vision of their teachers. The true Christian gentleman is the type at which we aim. Students entering the College must agree to observe the following require- ments: 1. Not to use tobacco in any form, fashion, or shape while in school, in or around the stores, or on the streets of Liberty. 2. Not to use any intoxicating drink or narcotic drug of any kind while a student in Liberty Normal College. 3. The use of profane or obscene language is strict- ly prohibited. 4. Students must not attend any party or social 10 Liberty Normal College. gathering given during the week except on permission from the President. 5. Abusing the College property or grounds is prohibited. 6. Young men are not allowed to make calls on the yoang ladies and young ladies are not allowed to have young gentleman visitors, except by permission of parents and faculty. 7. Each student must be prompt at meals, prompt at all school exercises and recitation periods. 8. Attendance at Sunday-School and Divine Ser- vices is required. 9. Every student is required to be at his home of boarding place from 7 o'clock at night until 8 o'clock in the morning. 10, No student boarding in Liberty will be allowed to leave the town except on permission of the Presi; dent. Those boarding students who go home on Friday evenings are excused to le<.ve town as soon as their week's work is done. , IL The faculty stands "m loco parentis'^ to the boarding student, and the boarding student is respon- sible to the faculty for all his acts while a student of the College. All are expected to be manly and womanly and do the right. Literary Societies. The Caldwell Literary Society was organized in 1896. It has done good work and the boys have been very en- thusiastic. It is the purpose of the Society to stimu- late in its members \i sciiolarly ambition, and improve them in oratory and expression. Liberty Normal College. 11 Tlie Carr Literar-y Society was organized in 1899. It was named in honor of one of North Carf^lina's great- est philanthropists and educators. Since its organiza- tion the members of the Society hcive done a great deal of work and they have gained that inspiration and en- thusiasm in public speaking and oratory that we hope will go with them through life. , Lt is in these societies that our boys become ac- quainted wi.h the laws of parliamentary usage and drill themselves in debate and elocution. The programs are interesting and each young man is raised to that de- o-vee of contidence in himsel'f that he can stand before an audience and address the people in his own language. riedical Attention. In case of sickness students will be well cared for. There are two resident physicians in the town, and they will give students all needed medical attention at re- duced cost. In cases of serious ihness with boarding students, parents will be kept notified of the condition of theii- son or daughter. Physical Culture. The College lays special stress on physical culture. Eveiy student, is expected to take such a regular and systematic course of physical training as will give him a sound and healthful body. One of the members of the faculty will direct this work, and will prescribe such calisthenic and gymnastic drills as the individual student needs. Students will take out-door recreation in the diflerent games of the day. All athletic spoi'ts 12 Liberty Normal College. are encouraged to that extent that they will develop a strong and vigorous physical being. The College does not favor any brutal games and v^^ill not allow its sti?dents to participate in such. While the College has its ball club, the policy of the CoUege will not be to encourage its students to take tours for the purpose of playing match games with other clubs and organizations of the kind. In general, this is de- morahzing, and the Liberty Normal College prefers to have its reputation built on a more enduring foundation than its power in brute force. We wish to excel in the intellectual attainments of our students. While the student is encouraged to develop his body, he is more encouraged to develop that part of his nature that is to give him power and influence among men, and is to enable him to be a useful citizen in his communitv. Moral and Religous Culture. Each clay's work will begin with a song sei'vice, the reading of a Scripture lesson, and prayer. At the close of the day's work the students are again called together, a portion of Scripture is read, and prayer oifered. Wo put forth every effort to inculcate into the student the true principles of morality. We do not believe in devel- oping the intellect at the expense of the moral or relig- ious nature of the individual. All goes hand in hand. A series of morning talks is given by flie Presi dent. Duty in its different phases is set before the student body. Questions of Moral Philosophy are dis- cussed, and the princi[)les governing man in his i-elation to man and in his dealings with his fellow man aj'e fully discussed. Students are taught what it takes to consti- Liberty Normal College. 13 tute light, and they are then taught toappl}^ these prin- ciples in their daily school life. The feelings are dis- cussed and analyzed and their influence upon the will fully set forth. It has been observed that this series of lectures has had a great deal to do with the forma- tion of the student's moral character. Boarding Facilities. Students can get board no cheaper any where than at, Liberty. There are quite a number of families in town who take boarding students and give them the ad- vantages of a Christian home. All get the very best board and have everything furnished them that they need. Tliey need bring nothing with them from home in the hue of furniture, bed-clothing, towels, &c., as ev- erything is included in the cost of board. Students can get all these advantages from $6.00 to $7.00 a month. Besides, tliere area number of families in Liberty who do not care to take boarding students regularly, but have rooms that they will rent to young ladies who wish to board themselves. Rooms will cost about 50 cents a month. Young ladies who wish to take advan- tage of this cheaper method of boarding, will have to furnish their room, and furnish all the necessary bed- clothing, towels, napkins, &c. They have a stove fur- nished them and most cooking utensils will be furnish- without further cost than the cost of the room. So young ladies who wish to board themselves can find good homes and they can make their board cost them as little as they wish. All young ladies wishing to board themselves should write the president of the Col- lege, and all necessary arrangements will be made for them. 14 Liberty Normal College. There are also a number of rooms in town that young men can get at a small cost and board themselves. These rooms are conveniently located and do not gener- ally cost the student more than 25 cents a month. 50 cents a month is the highest cost of any of these rooms. The young man boarding himself furnishes all the fur- niture that he needs. In the past, many of the best students and those who have taken away the highest honors of the College, have generally been those who boarded themselves. — All honor to the young man or the young woman who is willing to board himself or herself, and put forth the greatest effort, and undergo the the greatest inconven- iences in order that they may secure an education. By so doing, young men and young women of very limited means have been enabled to secure a school training and a culture of the highest type. Loan Fund. During the Autumn of 1899, a fund of $3000.00 was raised and placed in the hands of a Board of Trustees, of which J. P. Pickett is President and Dr W. J. Staley is Secretary and Treasurer. The interest of this fund is to be used for the benefit of needy students. It is lent to them in amounts sufficient to pay their tuition in the College as long as they may wish to attend. This money is lent to the student without interest until the student completes his education at school, or until he enters on the duties of actual life. No student is al- lowed to borrow more from the fund than a sufficient amount to pay his tuition, and he must give such secur- ity as will make the amount safe. All students wishing help from this fund must come well recommended. Liberty Normal College. 15 Scholarships. Rev. G. F. Miloway, Pastor of the Burlington Methodist Protestant Church, has estabhshed one free scholarship in the Liberty Normal College which enti- tles the holder to free tuition in the Liberty Normal College as long as he holds the Scholarship. All appli- cants for the scholarship should correspond with the donor. Rev. J. D. Williams, Pastor of the Winston Metho- dist Protestant Church, has also established one free scholarship in the Liberty Normal College. This scool- arship may be secured by any young man or woman who complies with the conditions laid down by Rev. Mr. Williams, All students applying for this scholar- ship should correspond with Rev. J. D. Williams, Win- ston, North Carolina. Besides these, the College offers five full scholar- ships and five half scholarships which will entitle the students holding them to full tuition or half tuition free as long as they meet the requirements of the College. The conditions for winning these scholarships will be made known by the president of the Cohege to those who apply. They are mainly given for the benefit of those young men arnd women who have not the means to attend school otherwise. All applying for them should send testimonials of good character- Other Scholarships. The University of North Carolina has presented one scholarship to that young man who prepares him- self most thoroughly for the University of North Caro- lina. This scholarship gives the holder four years' free tuition in the University of North Carolina. 16 Liberty Normal College. The PrewSident of the Agricultural cand Mechanical College at Raleigh has donated one scholarship in that Institution to that young man who is appointed to it by the President of the Liberty Normal College This gives the holder free tuition for four years in A. and M. College at Raleigh, North Carolina. Other scholarship funds are expected to be estab- lished this year, and no effort will be spared to give every young man and young woman a chance to win an education. To all that earnestly seek to win culture and scholarship, the College is open and the faculty say "Come!" No effort will be spared to make the College, both in scholarship and in the advantages offered, the equal of any school in the Sonth. its students have taken the highest rank in the University, Wake Forest and many other schools and colleges in tlie South. The growth of the institution for the past six yeai"s has been quite gratifying. The College has been gain- ing power and influence, and it is expected that the next year's work will supersede all foi'mer years in numbers and advantasres offered. Departments of Instruction. The Courses of Study embrace the subjects taught in the primary schools, high schools, and academies of our land, also those in our colleges. Our Courses of study are divided into different groups which coi re- spond to the different stages of the students' mental development. The same faculty teach in all these de pepartments, and the younger student receives the same attention as the older and more advanced. The work is divided among the Primary, Intermediate, Academic, and Collegiate Departments as follows: — Liberty Normal College. 17 Primary Department.

Of all the studies in any school or college course, the English Language is by far the most important. No j'Oung person should leave school without a thor- ough knowledge of his native language. It constitutes the basis of all other educational accomplishments. Grammar is required four terms of five months each in the Preparatory Department in order to turn the attention of the student to the underlying princi- ples and relations of the language. Masterpieces of British and American Literature are studied with a view to introduce the student to lit- erature, and to teach him how to interpret and repre- sent life. Selections from Shakespeare, Chaucer, and other Enghsh Classics are studied lo help to impress the studer)t with the fact that, if he wishes to know and understand literature, he must come in close contact with the 'writings of the leading authors. One term is devoted to a dailj^ study of the history, use and derivation of the words of our hmguage based on Johnson's Study of English Words. During the entire course, frequent drills in compo- sition, essays, and written reports on reference read- ings and on assigned topics are required. After the first two years of the College course have been com- pleted, tiie student is thrown upon his own resources, and during the last year, orations are required to be delivered in the presence of the class.

Sanford's Pri- mary, and Colaw and Elwood's Arithmetics form the course of study in this branch of Mathematics. Went- worth's New School Algebra is studied during the last year in the Academic Department. In the College, the following is prescribed:— First Year. — Wentworth's School Algebra completed and Wentworth's College Alirebra begun. Second Year. — Wentworth's College Algebra to Determinants.

Tlie student thei] reads a beginners' histojy of the United States, and after having mastered that, lie studies an advanced United States History. He is re- quired to read a number of reference books from the library. All the works of merit that deal with the his- tory of our country are read by I lie different members of the class and written essays on tliem ai'e required. The History of North Carolina is studied so that the student may become acquainted with the piincipal events that have taken place in his own state. The work in the College is ])ursued as fohows: — Firtit I'ear. - Myers' General History; Montgomery's English History. Second Fear.— -Mommsen's History ofRome; Smith's History of Greece. Third )'e«r.— -Lectures on Universal History ; T'ompayre's and Painter's Histories of Education; The Philosophy of History. Fourth I'ear. -History of France; History of Germany and Spain Natural and Physical Science. Here the student is brought lace to face with na- ture and with nature's work. The less advanced stu dents study Maury's Primary Geography, and are then carried to the mastei-y ot the Complete and Physical Geographies. Liberty Normal College. 23 Physiology is taught by means of text-books and lectures. The study is practical and is carried beyond the bounds of the ordinary text-book. Zoology, Geolo- gy, Botany and Astronomy are taught by means of text-books and lectures. Physics and Chemistry are also taught. Magnetism and Electricity will receive special attention. The student will be required to make experiments at every stage of his work. Pedagogy. Libefty Normal College makes it one of its special aims to ti-ain teachers, and this course of study is offer- ed foi their especial benefit. No person who has taken this course, O)- even a part of it, has ever failed to secure a Teacher's First Grade Certificate in North Car- olina. In the past the demand for teachers has been greater than the College could supply. The young men and women who have taken this work have gone out over the State and have become apostles of light and culture wherever they have gone. The demand now is for trained teachers, men and women who have a knowledge of the principles that un- derlie mental training. It is the purpose of this de- partment to give professional training and that knowl- edge which distinguishes the teacher from the mere scholar. To this end, it undertakes the study of educa- tion under its three phases: Practical, Scientfic, and Histoi'ical. Under the Art phase is offered a study of the best methods of organizing, governing, and instruct- ing a school. The courses offered are as follows: — Fir.'it y^w/'.— Pag-e's Theory and Practice of Teaching-, and White's Elements of Pedagogy.

The study of Economics is a necessary part of a thorough education. These courses aim to impart that wide knowledge and liberal culture which results from an intelligent and philosophical study of the records of the past: to trace and set forth the steps of progress in the development of modern civilization; and, by an im- partial exposition of the fundamental principles of eco- nomics, political, and social science, to lead the student to realize his duties and obligations to society and to the state, and to prepare him for the intelligent exercise of the rights and privileges of free citizensliip. LiBEKTY Normal College. 25 The course in Political Economy embraces a histori- cal survey of the development of the economic life and of modern industrial society, and an exposition of the principles underlying the four great departments of Eco- nomics viewed from the standpoint of private enter- prise — Wealth, Exchange, Production, Distribution. Descriptive Political Economy also receives marked at- tention in the study of the correlated subjects — Social- ism, Taxation, Free Trade and Protection, Bimetalism. Banking, and the Labor Problem. Sociology includes a study of the general principles underlying the social life of man with special reference to its relations to the living social questions of the day. *'An Introduction to the Study of Society" by Small and Vincent is used as a text book. Lectures on the Natural History of Society will be given from time to time. Elocution. Nothing has been more neglected in this part of the country than this important subject. The Liberty Normal College offers a thorough course in Voice Train- ing, Expression, Gesture, and Extempore Speaking. Pulton and Trueblood's and Straw's Elocutions are used as text-books. The principles of gesture and gesticula- tion are taught. Every effort is made to assist the stu- dent in becoming a good reader or speaker. Commercial College. This is one of the special departments of Liberty Normal College. The time has come when the world is calling for practical and accurate business men and women. The course here given is preeminently prac- 26 Liberty Normal College. tical, omitting none of the details of office work. The student is drilled in all the principles of Bookkeeping and of Commercial Law. The course we give at the Liberty Normal College is a thorough course and is not to be compared with the courses given by some of the schools of our country. Our course is thorough and we prepare a man for busi- nes'g' and a business career. MVe jjrepare students for the work of life, and no student is allowed to receive our Business College Diploma unless he is thorough in his work, and unless we are willing to risk the reputa- tion of this department of our College in his ability to perform the work for which we have prepai-ed him. We make no hesitation in saying that the Principal of this Department is one of the most thorough busi- ness men in the South. He is tlioroughl}'^ fitted for his work and prepares his students according to the latest business methods. The regular Business College Course comprises the following branches of study: Spelling- and Defining; Comercial Law; Bookkeeping, Sin- gle and Double Entry; Business Letter . Waiting ; Penmanshi]); Arithmetic; Punctuation. Students must take up such studies in the Litera- ry Department as will enable them to make up all de- ficiencies in Grammar, History and Geography. No student will receive a diploma in this depart- ment unless his moral charactei- is such that the Facul- ty could recommend him to any position of honor and trust. The Faculty will assist w^orthy graduates in securing positions. We would say to the young man oi* the young wo- man that we are living in an age w^hen we must have men and women who are well prepared and well equipped Liberty Normal College. 27 for a business career, and that success is surely the goal of that young man or young woman who prepares for a commercial life, and then with persevering energy stick to their chosen calhng. The. best preparation is given in our school, and if you prepare yourself here, there is no reasonable doubt but that with the pluck and energy of a heroic manhood or womahood, you will surely succeed. Typewriting. The day has come when there is a demand for the Typewriter and the Stenographer, and no person skilled in tliese branches is ever long without a position. We use the best machines and secure the best results. Insti'uction is given in fingering, manifolding, touch, nnd writing all business forms. Students are instruct- ed in the use of the machine, its care and mechanism. They are required to make haste slowly, and in the end they are perfect. We do not give Diplomas in Type writing until the student has acquired a speed or 60 words to tiie minute. Stenography. , The College offers this year a course in Stenogra- phy. The world is demanding men and women who can write faster than the ordinary penman. In this day of push and rush we must prepare to keep up with the world of business. The course offered is thorough and practical. The student is taught to write as fast as a person ordinarily converses, then he is lequired to copy the dictation ex- ercise on the Typewriter. Dictation exercises are given tlwoughout the whole course of study. 28 Liberty Normal College. Diplomas are granted wlien the take as many as 120 words per minute. student can Penmanship. A full course in Plain and Ornamenla) Penmanship is given to all students who wisli to avail themselves of the opportunity. Every student should aspire to write a good hand, and with a little diligence any one can learn to write a good hand in a few months' time. Our penman is one of the best in the South, and we hope all young men and women will avail themselves of the op- portunity of taking lessons under him. Correspondence Course. There are quite a great many students all over the country who have not the time to spend in school, but who have some time that they would like to spend in profitable study. There are many that have tl>e time to r^— 7??^f^ -^. ?^'i--^ ,-" ' '*! ^ - Liberty Normal College. 29 to pi-epare lliem selves for higher positions while at their work, but who cannot drop their work and go to school as resident students. There are still others who would be glad to take a course of study just for the mere sake that they have for the love of knowledge and truth. To all such as these, the faculty of the Liberty Normal College offers courses of instruction by corre- spondence. Instruction will be given by correspond- ence al a low cost in any of the branches of study that are outlined in the Courses of Study in this Catalogue. Any ueison wishing to prepai'e for examination for a TcMcher's Certificate, for the Civil Service, or for any- thing else, and cannot spare the time to attend school, would do w^ell lo coi-respond with the President and lake one of ihe Corj-espondence Courses offered by the ColU^ge The College guar;intees satisfaction in this work. Courses aie outlined, instruction is given, papers nie coirected, and the student receives all pos- sible aid ill tliis coi'respondence work. The work is moi-e thorough than that given by any other Cor- respondence School in the country. Lecture Courses. It has been the policy of the College to have a course of public lectures given through the College year. The Lecture ()ourse will be especially rich this year. Some of the most noted lecturers in the State and some from other States have consented to deliver lect- ures, and the Faculty of the College will prepare pro- giams at lenst once each month. DitTereut members of the Faculty will also deliver lectures from time to time on subjects of interest and profit. We believe this course will be profitable to the 30 Liberty Normal College. student, and we feel that it will be worthy of liis con sideration in clioosing- a school to attend. School of riusic. The object of this School is to give to young men and woman Ihat musical training that the ])resent age demands. Instruction is offered in both Vocal and Instrumental Mu- sic. Students are taught to sing at sight. '^Jlie director of the School of Music has taken courses in music in some of the best schools and Conservatories in the South, and slie is fully |)re[)ared to give instruction in all branches of Vocal and instru mental Music, In the department of Instrumental Music, the stu dent will be taught correct ideas of liuje and move" ment. Students will here have the opportunity of mak- ing good musicians, but they must not forget that no amount of instruction can make them such, unless ihey have the necessary anjount of patience and eneigy. They must labor for an end so worthy. The courses caj'ry the student through the following studies. Primary. Matthew's Graded Course, Books I, IL ITI; Czerny ; Bertini, Mason's Touch and Teclinic. Intermediate Matthew's Books IV. V. VI; Bach's Inventions; Heller; Czerny. Advanced. Matthew's Books VII, VIII, IX, X; Kullok's Octave Studies; Liberty Normal College. 31 Selections from Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Mendelsohn, Liszt, Weber. Schumann, and others. Requirements for Graduation. Upon the completion of the prescribed work in any of the courses of study, the student will receive a Di- ploraa. No student will be allowed to graduate whose recitation ;ind examination grades fall below 80 per (tent. No student will be allow^ed to graduate unless his or lier moral character is such that the Faculty can i-ecommend them to any position of honor and trust. The Diploma fee is $2. riedals and Prizes.

Prizes of Books will be offered to the students of the Primary, Intermediate, and Academic Depart- ments of the College. All these Medals except the Orator's, Declaimer's and Reciter's Medais are given for the full year's work. Students competing for the Declaimer's, Reciter's and Orator's Medals must have been students of the Col- lege at least two months previous to their Contest for the Medal. The Faculty are the sole judge as to who are eligi- ble to enter these cantests. There will be no contest unless there are as many as four contestants. Any student having won (me of these prizes or medals will not be allowed to compete for the same medal or prize again. Other Honors. Any student who, in merit, in recitation and exami- nation grades makes an average of 97 per cent, or over will be entitled to the honor. ''Summa cum Laude.'' Any student who, in merit, in recitation and exami- 34 Liberty Nokmal College. nation grades makes an average of 94 per cent, or over up to 97 per cent, will be entitled to the honor ''Magna cum Laude.''

Special Information. If possible to do so, enter at the be«iinning of the term. Classes are organized on the tirsl (iay and regu- lai' work is commenced on the second day ot the term. No deduction will be made in tuition charges lo those who enter a few days late, or who leave a few days be- foi'e the close of the term. Any student entering the College and leaving with- out rendering a satisfactoi-y excuse will bo charged an entrance fee of $5. ^Every student is expected to stand the examina- tions of i;he College, and any student failing to stand the examinations without rendering a satisfactory ex- cuse and being excused by the Faculty will be expelled. Each student should provide liimself with a Bible and keep it regularly in his i-oom. We believe in en- cou)-agii]g the young to read the Bible. Reports will be sent to pai-enis or guardians every ten weeks sliowing the progress of students and their general deportment. Students may enter at any tiniQ and are charged from the day of entrance exce})t as hereinbefore pro- vided. The College makes no deduction from tuition bills except in case of protracted sickness, and we trust no one will ask it. Liberty Normal College. 35 The [)G()ple of Liberty and the surrounding coun- try are requested not to give any social entertainments at their homes to whicli they invite students of the Col- lege during the school week. Such parties and enter- tainments are a bane to the student's intehectual hfe, and they can not be allowed to attend. They interfere with the student's work, and we must insist that tlie student's business here is to study. While students are here under our control we purpose to govern them for their own liighest good, and it is hoped that no one wih liave l-l)e spirit of interfering whore he has no business. The time it takes to complete any course of study will depend upon the student's natural ability and his application to his work. Five months will generally be required to complete the Commercial Course a,nd four years to complete any of the College Courses. Sludenls will find plenty of rooms here in Liberty for rent at from 25 cents per month up. They can board themselves, or form clubs and reduce the cost of board to a very small sum. Many of our best students have done this in the past. They seem to be willing to do any way in their power to get an education. We lift oui" hats gladly to the young man or woman who is will- ing to undergo almost any privation that they may se- cure an education. A person that has that much grit in him will make a man in this world and the world will be made better by him. Thetime has come when all can get an education, and Liberty Normal College opens its gates to all and says "Come!" Expenses and Terms. Expenses are kept at a minimum. Liberty is one of the cheapest towns for living in this part of North 36 Liberty Normal College. Carolina. Its agricultural base enables tbe people here to give board to students at a low rate. The whole ex- penses, outside of books, need not exceed $100 per year of ten months, and some students, by rigid economy and boarding themselves, or in clubs, often reduce their expenses to $50 or less per year. The College char-ges, and cost of board, etc., are as follows: Tuition. PRIMARY DEPARTMENT PER MONTH. First Year $1.00 Second Year 1.25 Third Year 1.50 INTERMEDIATE "DEPARTMENT PER MONTH. First Year CL75 Second Year 2.00 ACADEMIC DEPARTMENT PER MONTH. First Year $2.50 Second Year 2.75 COLEEGE DEPARTMENT PER MONTH.

The rates given above are exact, and each student can determine, before en- tering, the cost of his tuition, etc., for one month or for one year in Liberty Normal College. No student will be chaiged for less than one month's tuition. If a student is in the College only for a few days, he will be charged for one full month's tuition and for his Contingent Pee. Where special rates are given a student, in consid- eration of his spending some months in the College, if the student leaves the College before the expiration of the time contracted for, he will be charged the regular tuition rates.
